Bionector is a safe and convenient needle-free system. Bionector is suitable for use with luer devices with an internal diameter of 1.7mm and over, and is available in different packaging configurations to suit user requirements. Catheter Site Infections Intravenous catheters are now in routine use in most veterinary practices for the administration of fluids, medications, blood products and potentially parenteral nutrition. As a direct conduit from the outside of the patient to the inside, catheters require careful handling and care to minimise complications such as thrombus formation, thrombophlebitis and sepsis. Infections associated with intravenous catheters are reported to be one of the most frequent causes of nosocomial infection in hospitalised patients in both human and veterinary medicine1 . The most commonly cultured organisms from catheters that are known to be infected are generally transient skin bacteria such as Staphylococcus spp, Steptococcus spp, Enterobacter spp and Pseudomonas spp. Bacterial colonisation of catheters is commonly present but the incidence of septicaemia is reported as less than 5% in human studies2 . The low human incidence of septicaemia is due to a vigilant catheter management programme. This includes the use and disinfection of closed intravenous systems incorporating needle-free access devices to minimise intraluminal progression of bacteria. Catheter related infections in veterinary patients are not thoroughly investigated, cultured and reported in the same way but the figure is likely to be much higher due to the nature of catheter positioning and patient compliance.
